The Train Museum of Havana is located in the old Cristina Station, built in 1859, in the quarter of Vedado in Havana.

Cuba was one of the first countries in the world to build a rail network, and the trains in the island started to work at least a decade before than in Spain.

The museum exhibits a great collection of old locomotives, photographies, and signaling materials, as well as an interesting review of the Cuban trains history.

On its interior you’ll find steam locomotives of broad and narrow rails, as well as diesel and electric locomotives. One of the most important pieces of the museum is the La Junta de Fomento Locomotive, bought in the US in 1842.

The museum also houses a space reproducing the operations room of a train station in the first half of the 20th century; and a Railway Modelling room exhibiting scale models of stations and railway equipments. The museum also hosts a library and a newspapers and periodicals library specialized in the field.

It is possible to do trips by train booking in advance.
